Fast forward to my vision of the future
It will have been a wild ride with plenty of ups, downs, and sideways moves.
The Start Up Ally will continue to:
- Be known as a trusted collaborator helping entrepreneurs save time, money, trigger new ideas or avoid pitfalls.
- Have fun and work with emotionally intelligent and open minded entrepreneurs.
- Elevate and connect entrepreneurs who may not have the same access to investment or business opportunities to those who can support.
- Recognise the importance of self-care and wellbeing because it can be mentally and emotionally draining to start a business irrespective of whether it’s funded or not.
- Challenge and be challenged to think differently to understand alternative perspectives and promote inclusivity.
5 years from now I want to join the ranks of those sitting on the other side of the table and become an angel investor.
In the present, I am on a learning quest to put myself into the shoes of the entrepreneurs who are daring to dream so that I can use the experience to guide my future investment decision making.
